Diverse, Jazzy, Funky and Soulful
I bought this album over 10 years ago and it still sounds as brilliant and in vogue today as it did then. I would even call it one of the best R'n'B albums of all time taking into account I am a big Stevie Wonder fan who unfortunately did not guest on this particular album. Quincy Jones a man who lives and breathes music, producing, arranging and sometimes composing for such greats as Frank Sinatra, Count Basie, George Benson, Michael Jackson .......... not to mention classic soundtracks to films such as The Italian Job and In the Heat of the Night. Back on the Block is one his best 'solo' albums.
From the opening prologue where even Quincy Jones adds his own rap seguing into the title track to a variety of rappers Ice T, Melle Mel, Big Daddy Kane, Kool Me Dee not forgetting little 12 year old Tevin Campbell on lead vocal (check out his superb I'm Ready solo album). Even if you are not into rap, the excitment and the groove, plus the wicked inclusion of the opening siren bars of Quincy's own TV Theme tune Ironside, are enough to guarantee you won't keep still!
ll' be good to You (a classic Brothers Johnson Tune, also produced by Quincy Jones) is given soaring vocals by Ray Charles and Chaka Khan.
If that doesn't do it for you then Wee B.doinit is an absolute masterpiece of accapella singing with samples of head scratching, chest beating, tongue clucking layered to the vocal percussive skills of Bobby McFerrin with Take 6, Seidah Garrett, Al Jarreau, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, you will want to play it again and again.
The Places You Find Love is a lovely African flavoured ballad with Gospel vocals featuring the Andrae Crouch Singers.

I bought this CD years ago when it first came out (around 10 years ago?) and I'm still listening to it now. The Secret Garden makes me go weak at the knees, it is so so good. I defy anyone to ever get bored when listening to this album! The music is so varied and the guest artistes so diverse that the album itself is the most eclectic I have ever owned. Quincy Jones is an absolute master in all that he produces. Cannot recommend highly enough.
